You have clout. Have you discovered it yet?
It is easy to believe thatpower, influence, and leadership are gifts given to a special few. But theBible says otherwise.
We all long for significance,even as we fear we will never be good enough. We listen for God, but hear onlyvoices of doubt and practicality. Listen again. There is a call that only youcan answer.
Clout is power and influence.It is an undeniable trait that opens doors and moves mountains. You have it,and you can use it to change the world around you. With Scripture and storiesfrom her own life, Jenni Catron maps out the pitfalls and clear paths on theway toward discovering and unleashing your very own clout.
This is not a quest of powerfor power’s sake. Influence is not aguarantee of fame or fortune. It is an opportunity to use your gifts to do theextraordinary. This is a journey toward dismantling what stands in the way ofyour influence and leadership, discovering your God-given clout, and using it toanswer God’s calling on your life.
Learnabout Jesus and others who sought to lead like him. Stop dreaming and startplanning. Define your direction, set your goals, and confront the challengesthat stand between you and the person God made you to be. Step into your sphereof influence with the humble confidence of Christ.Don’t hide. We need you. Discover your clouthere.
